Contractual teaching in higher education: An empirical investigation into challenges, job satisfaction, and faculty experiences


Author(s): Dr. Pradeep Kumar Singh

Abstract: This empirical study investigates the unique challenges faced by contractual teachers in higher education, a group increasingly integral to meeting the fluctuating demands for teaching expertise. Contractual or adjunct faculty members, while playing a crucial role, confront a distinctive set of challenges that necessitate thorough examination. To provide a comprehensive understanding, this research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative analysis of job satisfaction with qualitative insights from interviews and surveys.Quantitative data, derived from job satisfaction surveys, will be subjected to rigorous statistical analysis to identify patterns and correlations related to the well-being of contractual teachers. Meanwhile, qualitative insights obtained through interviews and surveys will capture the nuanced experiences and perceptions of contractual faculty, shedding light on challenges such as job security, integration into the academic community, and access to resources.By integrating both quantitative and qualitative methods, this study aspires to present a holistic picture of the challenges faced by contractual teachers in their academic roles. The findings are expected to contribute valuable insights that can inform policies and practices to enhance the working conditions and job satisfaction of contractual faculty members. Ultimately, this research endeavours to address the gaps in understanding the unique dynamics of contractual teaching positions in higher education.
